Description Wan-Teh Chang 2006-04-19 10:31:08 PDT
When we compile NSS on HP-UX, we get the following compiler warning:

cc -o HP-UXB.11.11_DBG.OBJ/HP-UX_ABI32_FPU/prng_fips1861.o -c -g -DHPUX10 -Ae +Z
 -DHPUX -Dhppa -D_HPUX_SOURCE -D_USE_BIG_FDS -Aa +e +DA2.0 +DS2.0 -DHPUX11 -DXP_
TIBLE -I../../../../dist/HP-UXB.11.11_DBG.OBJ/include  -I../../../../dist/public
/nss -I../../../../dist/private/nss -Impi -Iecl  prng_fips1861.c
cpp: "prng_fips1861.c", line 78: warning 2001: Redefinition of macro BSIZE.

I examined all the system headers in /usr/include and its subdirectories.
I found that the macro BSIZE is defined in the system header file


but not used anywhere.  So the redefinition of macro BSIZE in prng_fips1861.c
is benign, hence the "trivial" severity of this bug.

I suggest that we only fix this bug (by renaming BSIZE as RNG_BSIZE
or FIPS_BSIZE, and renaming the related macro GSIZE similarly) on the
trunk (NSS 3.12) to avoid redoing the FIPS RNG algorithm testing.

I suggest you merely 
#undef BSIZE
Comment 2 glen beasley 2009-02-21 11:11:01 PST
bug 457045 has fixed this issue by replacing FIPS 186-2 PRNG with SP 800-90 Hash_DRBG. The file prng_fips1861.c no longer exists in the current NSS source.
